GBAR RealTour Member Meeting Webinar

GBAR RealTour Member Meeting Webinar
Buyer Financial Assistance Programs

It’s no secret we live in a high-cost housing market, and with inventory low and mortgage rates higher over the last two years it’s become more and more challenging to find and purchase a home in Greater Boston.  So, in observance of April as National Fair Housing Month, our next RealTour session is intended to educate you on some of valuable resources agents and brokers need to know about to help first-time, low-income or minority buyers purchase a home. 

Our featured panel will detail down payment programs, mortgage loan products, and other financial assistance resources available in the local market to make home ownership more affordable. Specifically, you will learn about the Equity Builder Program, as well as the Lift Up Homeownership and Housing Our Workforce initiatives from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, the One Mortgage and One+Boston programs available from the Massachusetts Housing Partnership and Boston Home Center, MassHousing Down Payment Assistance programs, the STASH First-Gen Home Program from the Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance, and more. 

In addition, for those who work with tenants to find rental housing, there also will be a presentation on the state’s rental housing voucher and Rental Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) programs and the new Rapid Housing Initiative from MetroHousing Boston.


FREE to Attend, GBAR Members only. Pre-Registration is required.
